Who is Jeremy Lalrinnunga?

Lalrinnunga was born on October 26, 2002, in Aizawl, Mizoram. In the early 1990s, his father Lalneihtluanga Ralte was well-known on the Mizoram boxing circuit. Jeremy comes from a lowly background because his family circumstances prevented him for a very long time from pursuing his aspirations. He began working as a labourer on contract with the neighbourhood Power Works Department in an effort to provide for his family (PWD).
